If I had a choice of 262's I'd do the Freewing one. Nacelles are much more scale, and it flies great!

As a prior business owner, it was tough sending stuff up to Canada from the US. Most times it cost less to ship to Europe than Canada. :eek:

Well, obviously it didn't work. They signed back up here yesterday as "gensaceworld", and plastered a pic of Tattu lipos in the posts. Needless to say, they are no longer here.

I even go so far as to have a small fan blowing onto the power supply and charger when I'm charging my 6S packs just to make sure everything stays as cool as possible.

That's a decent looking mod for the cheater hole. I'd even go so far as suggesting a third slot be added forward of the current 2. The more airflow, the better (so long as there's not too much ;)).

Yes, you pick up some positive thrust in the air as you will have air flowing more freely into the opening. With the cheater hole close, you are "starving" the fan for air.
